The surge in Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) has brought along an increase in NFT scams, encompassing a variety of fraudulent activities such as fake NFTs, NFT Ponzi schemes, and typical OpenSea scams. Even renowned projects like the Bored Ape Yacht Club have found themselves in the crosshairs, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive understanding of these scams for anyone venturing into the NFT space.
The complexity and novelty of NFTs often blindsided even seasoned traders, fuelling these scams. Scammers widely use social media platforms, like Instagram, to execute their fraudulent activities, contributing to the increasing necessity for vigilance within the NFT community.
While NFTs themselves are a legitimate technological innovation, the rapid evolution and hype surrounding them have attracted scams. These scam tactics range from selling plagiarized digital art, creating fake NFT marketplaces, to promoting non-existent NFT projects. Many high-profile cases, like the controversial CryptoZoo NFT project associated with internet personality Logan Paul, have aroused suspicion, highlighting the need for thorough due diligence and skepticism when navigating the NFT ecosystem.
